EASE provides energy-efficient upgrades to multifamily properties using no-cost and rebate programs. See if your property qualifies!
The Need for Efficiency in Multifamily
Beginning January 1, 2020, all new residential projects must be designed to achieve Zero Net Energy. What does it mean for existing properties? Multifamily properties will need to keep up and transition over to California’s new efficiency standards overtime.
We can try to push it off but it’s already here! Senate Bill 407 requires pre-1994 multifamily housing’s plumbing fixtures meet state water-saving standards.
- Shower heads: Flow rate must be 2.5 gallons or less.
- Aerators: 2 gallons per minute or less.
- Toilets: They must use 1.6 gallons or less
Along with plumbing, other home features may need to update which includes Heating, Air Conditioning, Water Heating, Insulation & Air Sealing, Appliances, Lighting, Energy Management Tools, and more.
In partnership with local utilities, EASE specializes in providing energy-efficient solutions to multifamily owners by taking advantage of no-cost and rebate programs in a “one-stop-shop” manner. A thorough walkthrough of the property can help determine all services you may be eligible for.

KILOWATT HOURS SAVED
Rebates isn’t only about getting a few dollars back on a new appliance, it’s about receiving incentives based on energy-efficiency goals being met. Incentives are determined on a per-unit basis with a cost cap of 75% of the project cost for projects completed in Disadvantaged Communities and 60% of the project cost for projects in all other areas. Disadvantaged Communities can take advantage of the No-Cost services which can attribute to the rebate incentives met by those energy-efficiency goals.
*The incentive structure may be altered at any moment throughout the course of the program.

Frequently Asked Questions
EASE, along with a few other agencies, are exclusively contracted with your local utility companies specialized in providing these services to you. We’re fully licensed and insured and can provide insurance certificates upon request before the start of the project.
How are some services offered at no-cost?
Some services are rate-payer funded. Utility customers pay a “tax/surcharge” on their bills which fund various programs.
What assurances can I expect?
Once we’ve conducted a thorough assessment of the property, we’ll accurately determine which services you’ll be eligible for and set realistic expectations. We’re looking to provide 100% satisfaction!
What will you be inspecting to determine these services?
We’ll be looking at the condition of the weatherstripping at the entryways, lighting, toilets, thermostats, showerheads, and major appliances of individual units. We’ll also be looking at the property’s common area, such as lighting, pool pump, laundry room, etc. to see which services you may be eligible there as well.
What Can I Potentially Receive?
The services you receive are based on the overall layout of the home, which utility companies you have an account with, how your home is heated, age and condition of appliances, etc. Our goal is to provide everything possible; from weather-proofing your home to replacing major appliances!
